Syscom Introduces AmberStrand Fiber

Syscom Technology Inc., Columbus, Ohio, has developed a metalized polymer fiber for use in electrotextile applications including aerospace, military, sports, miniature electronic and healthcare instrumentation.

AmberStrand is produced using a patented process in which Japan-based Toyobo Corp.'s Zylon® poly (p-phenylene benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fiber is metal-coated. According to Syscom, AmberStrand offers lighter weight; and greater flexibility, mechanical strength and durability than conventional conductive metal wires; as well as customizable electrical conductivity.

"Initial customer receptivity is unusually strong, and the product will enable novel and surprising applications ," said Jar-Wha Lee, Ph.D., Syscom's founder.
